WOYWW 294

HI everyone,

I've just realised it's Wednesday - and Wedesday isn't just another day, it's the day we gather over at Julia's Stamping Ground and see what everyone's been up to. Why not join us? Put the kettle on, pop over to Julia's, link up and show the world What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!

Not much doing on mine today, there has been altogether too much Life getting in the way! But I have discovered that when time, space and energy are in short supply, a bit of doodling has a very calming effect on my cluttered head ...


... it's very strange how "tangling" on paper seems to de-tangle my mind, something about the repetition and the way it doesn't have to "be" anything. To find out all about Zentangle, a really good starting point is a visit to Tangle Patterns - it's brilliant and addictive but in a good way!

Thanks for visiting my blog today. I'm off to see what everyone is up this week - see you at Julia's :o)

Fun tangling! I doodle but not in such a organized way. I make marks and pictures and lots of eyes all over whatever scraps of paper are around...lol Happy WOYWW:) Shel#71

Your doodles are fantastic, Annie. I LOVE them. Does that mean you need a lot of patience to do these? lol Look at all of the detail. :)

Wow, Annie, these are just awesome! They look like they came out of a book, honestly! The coloured one is especially striking! That pesky life always gets in the way, doesn't it? Ideally, we would have two lives - a regular one for all the boring stuff and a creative one for all the fun stuff! Have a great weekend! Hopefully you'll find some more time to play!

Your tangles are amazing and colouring gives them a lot of interest. I've heard so many times that tangling is relaxing and like Yoga for the brain. I tried it several times and it makes me totally nervous. Just not my cup of tea.
Thank you for your earlier visit!
Hugs

Tangling can definitely be a calming experience. I love all the ones you worked on, especially that colorful stack of tangled blocks. Have a blessed week!
